The Most Expensive Mistakes of History Make Our Insides Churn

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/16/2021

If we’re being honest with ourselves, every once in awhile, we all make a mistake or two. Nobody is perfect and everybody messes up every once in a while. That’s basically a given in life. The variable in the situation just so happens to be how expensive this mess up is going to be. Sometimes, the expense could come in the form of money. Other times, it might come in the form of something like a ruined relationship. The one thing that mistakes share is that there is something to be lost on the other side.

This time, we take a look at the money side of things. In this massive compilation, we check out some of the most expensive mistakes that have gone on record. Let’s just say that, in the scheme of things, watching something like this will make you feel a little bit better about that mistake that you might’ve made this week. It might’ve seemed big at the time. It’s probably not so big anymore, though!

From container ships crashing and losing their cargo all the way to architectural failure discovered after massive buildings have had millions dumped into their design, some of these mishaps are rather unfortunate. However, at this point, nobody can really do anything about any of them. All that can be done moving forward is taking a long hard look at what went wrong and potentially learning from the mishaps.

By following along with the video below, we get a front-row seat to some of the world’s biggest blunders. After watching this, we get the feeling that recovering from your most recent blunder isn’t going to look as bad in comparison. Just imagine being the one responsible for some of these mishaps that cost companies big time. We definitely wouldn’t want to be in that hot seat!
